ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates – Jason Dufner’s first trip to the Middle East has been uneventful. Unfortunately the American’s caddie didn’t enjoy the same ease of travel.
It all started when Dufner’s bagman Kevin Baile – a Canadian living in Auburn, Ala. – arrived at the airport last Saturday for his flight to Abu Dhabi and was informed he hadn’t filled out the proper visa forms.
Dufner’s manager with IMG told GTC the American will use a local caddie this week in Abu Dhabi and has hired American Mark Mazro, who recently looped for Rhys Davies on the European Tour, for next week’s stop in Qatar.
